Baby Holly

Baby Holly was born on Friday the 14th at 9.36am weighing 8lbs 14.5ozs. She is just PERFECT!!! I can't keep my eyes off her.

The section was just as bad as I feared, I took a reaction to the anestetic and was really sick and shakey, thankfully it was less than half an hour from first cut to being sewn back up! The after care I have had has been terrible, I was left in a dirty blood stained bed for over 24 hrs despite asking at least 4 times for it to be changed, I was left to care for Holly on my own with very little help and had to lift her in and out of her cot the night of the section despite not being able to get out of bed. I never received in help in my personal care and was expected to do it myself despite not being allowed out of bed,

When I was allowed out of bed the bathroom was soo dirty and the floor flooded. The last time my wound was checked was Friday night, it was just a catalouge of errors! In the end I decided that Holly and I would be better off at home and would get better care from my dp than the midwives, so today I signed myself out.

I know I am getting better care at home and that Holly is being properly looked after. I'll still have my comunity muidwife in as she has been fantastic and I will be putting in a complaint about the treatment I have had!

Hope everyone else is doing well and that those over due babys are starting to make appearances!

  • Congratulations! Holly is so beautiful. Do all her new clothes fit her?

    Your stay in hospital sounds terrible. I was also left to fend for myself and lo after the C-section, but I did not feel as badly treated as you.

    Anyway you're home so enjoy Holly and have a great Christmas.
